This is one of the most magnificent pieces of property on the south shore of the island. If you want to get away from it all, this is it. Our home sits on 3 magnificent landscaped acres with stone walls, a long shell driveway, and a circular brick parking area. It abuts hundreds of acres of conservation land. The UNOBSTRUCTED view from the upstairs great room is of the Madaquecham Valley and Ocean.
New for the 2011 season, we have a large (60ft X 18 ft) heated custom pool suitable for laps or recreational swim, with an automatic safety cover, pool house, AND tennis court!
The house was completely redone in 2008.
Downstairs are 4 bedrooms, nicely furnished in summer cottage style. There are also 2 new full baths with brand new fixtures, slate floors, a clean white subway tiled shower in one, and a bathtub/shower in the other. There is also a nice laundry/mudroom with it's own separate entrance from the side of the house. Outside is a new and spacious outdoor show
Upstairs is a great room with soaring ceilings, a brand new Woodmode kitchen with granite counters, a peninsula and eating island. The decor upstairs is summer cottage style, with beautiful antique English Pine casement goods, cozy slip covered coaches, craftsman style woodwork, and top of the line oil-rubbed bronze lighting fixtures and ceiling fan.
The inside of the house is freshly painted in a soft French vanilla with white accents. Crisp white sheer curtains sway in the ocean breeze. Throughout the house are newly refinished pine floors. A French door leads to a south facing deck with stunning views, plus a large outdoor wicker dining set and gas grill. On the lower deck is an outdoor wicker grouping consisting of a love seat, chair and ottoman, and coffee table, with ivory cushions.
The ocean breezes keep you very comfortable, but should you want it, the entire house has central air-conditioning.
The pool cabana's kitchenette is equipped with a farm sink, under-counter refrigerator, beverage center, ice maker, microwave, and blender. There is a stunning mahogany counter with a marine finish and five bar stools, perfect for serving snacks and drinks poolside. Adjacent to the cabana is a shaded brick patio with an outdoor wicker round table,chairs, and gas grill. In the back of the cabana is a changing room, bathroom, and outdoor shower, all conveniently located by the pool.
Our names are Debbie and Ed. When we were first dating, many years ago, we vacationed on Cape Cod. Who would have dreamed that one day we would have our own summer home on the beautiful island of Nantucket, 30 miles off shore from Cape Cod. We purchased our first home on Nantucket in 1999. 10 wonderful summers were spent in that house. More recently, we purchased and completely renovated this property. We work hard most of the year, and look forward to our time on Nantucket where we can spend quality time with each other and our three daughters.
Owner/Manager Debbie purchased this house in 2007
We love Madequecham. It is the perfect get away. We think we have one of the nicest beaches on the island in our backyard. A few years ago, an article appeared in The Wall Street Journal naming the author's 10 favorite beaches in the world, and Madequecham made the list! We agree. The property our home sits on is a one of a kind. We feel very lucky.
Staying in this home is so relaxing. It is comfortable, warm, cozy, and very pretty, with all the modern amenities, but maintaining that unique Nantucket feeling. A true find! Please don't be concerned about the proximity of our area to the airport-we do not have a problem with air plane noise. We also do not have a problem with mosquitoes! We love to run on the magnificent paths through the conservation land surrounding our home. I especially love running through the path which bisects the Mellon Estate. Another favorite activity of ours is taking our bikes on the Milestone Rd bike path, circling around to the Polpis bike path, and stopping in Sconset for an ice cream or lunch, before heading back. You can afford to eat an icecream when you just biked 17 miles! (or you can take the short way to Sconset, which is only 3 miles) Our beach is amazing. It is almost never crowded. Even in the height of the summer, you can always find a spot to sit away from everyone else if that's what you prefer. We love sitting on the beach until sunset, followed by stargazing on one of the clearest skies we have ever seen. I still can't believe it when I come home at night and see the milky way, and if I catch it right, shooting stars!
Our family was so excited to have our own pool and tennis court starting in 2011. It is a dream come true for us. I love to swim laps, and my husband is an avid tennis player. My girls can't wait for their summer vacation next year. We hope you will chose to spend your summer vacation in our little piece of paradise next year as well.
Our family had a wonderful week at this house. The pool is amazing, the grounds are gorgeous and the nearby beach is pristine. Definitely need 4-wheel drive to get to Madaquecham. Too far to walk easily and there are deep ruts in the sand road.
Debbie was very accommodating throughout the entire process. She could not have been more helpful and was a pleasure to work with as we coordinated our large group's visit to lovely Nantucket.
The Property is gorgeous and very comfortable, it was great for both the adults and kids. We loved it!
Debbie helped us with restaurants, fun activities for the kids and was available for all our questions.
We would absolutely recommend it.
We had another wonderful vacation at Debbie and Ed's gorgeous Nantucket home! The pool setting could not be more lovely - and the recently built cabana has every convenience you could possibly want. The luxury linens in the bedrooms were brand new and an especially nice touch. We spent our days biking, playing tennis, hitting the nearby beach and enjoying the peace and quiet. We will be back!
This may seem a bit unusual, but I decided it was well worth asking Debbie & Ed if I could write a 'pre-arrival' review for their beautiful home and property. To celebrate our 30th anniversary, my husband and I began to look at locations across the US and Europe. Nantucket ended up getting our vote - it is hard to beat the beauty of Nantucket in early fall. We looked at our options on a number of websites. There were many great choices during the time period we would be there...in town, on a beach, in a neighborhood, a property with more privacy, or a lovely hotel. We were close to confirming a decision to stay in a villa in town on the water. Before moving forward with that reservation, I decided to call Debbie with a few additional questions about their home and property. Over the past years, we have rented many homes through VRBO and Home Away, and always found the owners easy to work with. Working with Debbie and Ed was incredible! I have never encountered such a kind and generous owner who was just as excited as we are about celebrating our anniversary on Nantucket! Their home is perfectly located on the island and surrounded by beauty. The area is not overly crowded, but not isolated either. It appeals to people who appreciate unspoiled nature, the comfort of a beautiful home, tennis, swimming in a heated salt water pool, easy access to bike paths, beaches, and so much more. Conservation land surrounds their neighborhood, so the views and spectacular scenery will be preserved forever. The gorgeous home and property 'speak for themselves,' and the incredible generosity of Debbie and Ed is what sealed the deal for us! I will recommend this home to any friend who is heading to Nantucket! If you are considering a trip to Nantucket, give Debbie a call. We are counting down the days until we get there!
(Please disregard arrival date. Since this review is being submitted before we arrive, I had to select a date that has already passed. We will be heading to Nantucket soon!)
The pictures do not do this house or property justice. It's the perfect vacation spot for a group and absolutely gorgeous. The house, the pool and the tennis court are in fantastic condition and the kitchen and cabana have everything you need. The location is private, quiet and serene. We want to come back every summer!
Wow, this property was perfect for our family. Our 10 year old twins loved the pool and also the tennis courts. So did we. The home was so clean, cozy and comfortable. We felt right at home when we arrived. Even with the rain and wind we enjoyed the beautiful home in jammies, making cookies and playing board games. Debbie and Ed, the owners take great pride in their home. Everything from the grounds, pool house, pool, tennis courts to the entire home is very well taken care of. The bedrooms are adorable and the linens and mattresses are TOP quality. We all slept great. The location of the property is close to town and very private. We ventured out daily, but really loved returning to the property. It was our home away from home for one week... I wish we could of stayed longer. We did not get a chance to use the pool house because of the weather. It is all set up and ready to have all day poolside dining. We cannot think of anything Debbie and Ed have left out on their property. They are very kind, generous and easy to deal with. If we ever get back to Nantucket, we would stay at this home. No need to look elsewhere, We highly recommend this property for an exceptional family vacation.
